Happy New Year! Our winter calendar is coming together with our established roster of incredible learning opportunities but new as well.
MIDAS is the perfect solution to help you keep those entrepreneurial or innovative resolutions, so check it out and we’ll look forward to helping you bring your ideas to life.
If you’re in need of prototyping, 3D printing and fabrication, the variety of equipment available at MIDAS is geared specifically to offer you state-of-the-art resources to create exactly what you need.
Maybe you’ve already got a start using our fabrication equipment and are wanting to take it to the next level? We’ve got you covered there, too! Advanced certification courses are also available.
Inspiration, learning, and new skills here we come!
Review our January calendar of courses and training… From woodworking on the Shopbot CNC to laser cutting and more, we’re sure there’s a course to fit exactly what you’re looking for as you consider your next DIY/maker project.
This isn’t all, of course! Be sure to review the full calendar of all upcoming workshops and courses here at MIDAS.
Shopbot CNC (Desktop & Alpha)
Training on BOTH the Desktop and Alpha Shopbot CNC included. The ShopBot Desktop has a bed size of 24″ x 18″ and a 1HP motor. This ShopBot Alpha is a full-size CNC with a 48″x96″ table with a 4HP motor. Both machines are run by the same programming software and have full capability to mill 2d and 3d prototypes.
With enough production capability for a three-shift factory, ShopBot PRSalpha tools are tough and sophisticated, gantry-based CNC routers using advanced technology for CNC cutting, drilling, carving and machining. Tooling and use make this pair of CNCs perfect for soft-material CNC cutting at any size.
3D Design & Printing with TinkerCad
This course will give starting tools and tips in 3D Design with TinkerCad from Autodesk, a powerful but intuitive to learn design program. Also, how to 3D Print these designs is instructed in this dual class!
MarkForged 3D Printer
This is a certification course.
The Mark Two is an industrial strength 3D printer here at the MIDAS Lab and using continuous fiber inlays together with high-performance nylons, it creates parts that can compete with metal!
You can learn more about the Markforged HERE.
Roland MonoFab SRM-20 Mini Milling Machine
The SRM-20 offers compact size and powerful functionality for production ready, realistic parts and prototypes. A wide range of materials, including modeling wax, chemical wood, foam, acrylic, poly acetate, ABS and PCB’s can be precision milled with this machine at MIDAS.
Creaform 700 3D Handyscan Scanner
The Handyscan is AMAZING but don’t take our word for it. Come and see for yourself! This session will demonstrate the handyscan on a number of objects: how to place tags, basic scanning, set up of a receiving software and review of captured online files. (CAD and others on demand).
This course DOES NOT cover the manipulation of captured images or printing but is intended to allow members to scan and understand the potential of this device.
Recommended for engineers, architects, manufacturers, machinists, makers and hobbyists alike.
